Staying here again as got a reasonable rate and with the Olympics coming up this place has had a face lift.
First improvement is staff attitude a far more welcoming first impression than before.
Food in evening reasonably good, breakfast average to good. Not as good as it used to be though.
Rooms , I booked a small Double just for myself and was pleasantly surprised, nice colour scheme
plenty of space (not small by city standards) nice bathroom.
One big let down was sheets and blankets!!! Come on guys this is 2012 not the 1970s !! Get some duvets. Also the heating system struggled to keep the place warm wouldnt want to stay there if the weather was any colder.
However the deal breaker here is the price, if you book on the phone you get quoted ridiculous four star rates for a place that i very Three star. More than £100 a night for this place (in any room) is way too much, but you can get fully pre paid rates for this or less on their website but not over the phone!
The booking area of the website needs updating though as it is very inflexible, everything is geared towards 2 guests so if you add dinner you have to pay for two guests!!
Much improved though all in all although "could do better". I got great Wifi as i was near the reception but beware not all rooms have it.
